Morning Bird Walk – January 2023

Scot Pipkin
Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
January 25, 2023
8:30AM - 10:00AM

Join Scot Pipkin, the Garden’s Director of education and engagement, who will lead a group walk through the Garden for a morning of watching and listening for a variety of birds.

During this walk you may see several types of bird species that migrate to our region for the winter. Our birders may see several types of sparrows, including the White-crowned, Golden-crowned, Fox, and the occasional White-throated sparrows. Other migrant species that may be spotted in the Garden this season include the Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Hermit Thrush, and Yellow-rumped and Townsend’s warblers. Both beginner and experienced birders will appreciate the diverse and beautiful birds that make their home around the Garden.

Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars and/or cameras! We’ll be meeting at the front of the Garden by the redwood bench near the entrance kiosk.

Note: Although the Garden is dog-friendly, participants are asked to not bring their dog(s) to this class.

Pricing and registration:

Garden Members: $20

General Public: $30
